Seek Him Continually, Serve Him Faithfully, Share Him Boldly

Bringing all women together in Christ for encouragement, belonging, connection, service and spiritual growth.

Each of you has been blessed with one of God’s many wonderful gifts to be used in the service of others. So use your gift well. 
(1 Peter 4:10, CEV)

At Christ Church we believe God has equipped women to lead and teach. Women are a valuable part of the church, and their gifts and graces need to be cultivated as they become disciple-makers. Our Women's Ministry seeks to bring all women together in Christ for encouragement, belonging, connection, service and spiritual growth. 

A number of Community Life Groups are available to equip the women of Christ Church.
